  •  If the Democrats (3.50)
    support this bill, I am finished with this party.  I expect the usual sell outs and compromisors such as Obama, Biden, and Hilary to support this Republican bill.  

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

    •  Huh? (none)
      What's wrong with it?

      It takes money away from the pork project bridge and helps NOLA reconstruction.

      What's the problem?

      •  If a Republican supports it (3.00)
        I am against it.  Enough said.  Time to show some spine.

        •  are you kidding.... (none)
          I would urge every democrat to support the move to remove the money for the alaskan bridge to nowhere if only to watch yet another republican INFIGHT break out....Alaska's senator has held fast to that bridge to nowhere money and he keeps claiming that bridge goes somewhere important...watching him try to make a case for leaving that pork project alone would be worth it...watching republicans spilt into pro bridge and anti bridge factions would be highly entertaining AND it would further expose the republicans as BIG SPENDERS on the publics dime...

          so i am all for democrats supporting the move to remove the funding for alaskas bridge to nowhere and move it to the gulf rebuilding effort...and the republicans who oppose this be damned :)

          •  It's actually Rep. Young (4.00)
            ...the chair of the House Transportation Committee, that has been so intransigent.  To the suggestion that we give up funding for the bridge to help Katrina victims, he responded "Kiss my ear".  

            If Alaska sees less Pork, it gives us less reason to keep re-electing those bozos to congress.  That's how Lisa "Who's yer daddy?" Murkowski got elected, when "Uncle" Ted Stevens started airing ads during the last week of the 2004 Senate race urging voters not to break up the dream team.

      •  well (4.00)
        the biggest problem is that you missed the joke.
    •  You have produced (none)
      an anomalously large spike in my sarcasometer.
    •  unfortunately (none)
      There are so many comments like that at DailyKos that are serious, its sometimes hard to tell when the poster is joking.

    •  Dude- (none)
      Johnny Rotten (nee John Lydon) now makes appearances on mainstream television shows making fun of antiwar demonstrators.

      Yes, I have quite frequently had the feeling that I've been cheated. While we're trading punk rock lyrics though, here's one to chew on:

      "Ever noticed that ROCK STARS always seem to LIE so much? John Lydon once said he cared, but he never really gave a fuck. Said he'd use the money he made so that people would have somewhere to go. But now he lives in the USA, and snorts coke after the show." (Rudimentary Peni, "Rotten to the Core")
